Mixed Media Tag

Hello everyone, I have a project to share with you today. I have created a mixed media tag for the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog, as part of a short bio about myself. You can read the blog post here.


I have used a Tando long tag, painted with gesso, I added some texture paste through a Dutch Doobadoo Swirls stencil, and allowed it to dry. I spritzed the tag with Decoart media sprays, and then added a bit of water to dilute them slightly. I added some gilding wax to the raised area and around the edge. I then stamped a word from the Artistic Expressions stamp set, using Jet Black Archival ink. I stamped two butterflies from The Rose Tree stamp set onto a piece of scrap card, and painted them using some of the spray and a water brush. I cut the butterflies out, and glued them to the tag, adding black flower stamens for antennae.

 Thanks for stopping by, xx

The colours are very 'you' & I particularly like your use of the black flower stamens for the antennae. Even though you've used the same colour families for the butterflies the way they 'glow' & stand out from the page is very effective. I'd imagine with the texture it's an amazing sight in actuality.
